    Great, weather more merciful than last year, amazing views, good leadership. I only missed the butterfly fest on the summit, but I guess they chose a weekday for their parade this year :-)

    Greetings Bob, This sounds like a delightful hike. I can walk to Old Mill from home so will come even if not off the wait list and can take anyone else waiting on another hike. I am a bit of a "speed demon or gazelle" so be forewarned. Cheers.

    Does anyone know if there's a safe place nearby to lock a bike?

      Hi Marla - I'm sure you could pop off front tire and throw into someone's car.

      The Mill Valley Library is right next to Old Mill and has a bike rack in front.
